AMA calls for new MBS rebates for GP telehealth consults
The Australian Medical Association has called on the government to introduce specific MBS rebates for telehealth consultations provided by GPs, along with a quarterly care coordination payment to improve team-based care.
In its annual pre-budget submission, the AMA also called for the proportion of healthcare spending on general practice by the federal government to be lifted from the current eight per cent to around 10 per cent in the longer term.
